If you're in the market for an affordable new phone, Amazon, Best Buy and B&H have gotten into something of small pricing war over Google's excellent pair of Pixel 3a devices. Amazon and B&H are currently selling all three color variants of the unlocked 64GB model Pixel 3a and 3a XL for $349 and $429 respectively. That's a $50 discount from their usual price. To sweeten the deal, you'll also get a $100 gift card from both retailers at checkout.

Google's powerful Recorder app now works on older Pixel phones

  Google's powerful Recorder app now works on older Pixel phones Over its last few Pixel cycles, Google has made a point of bringing some features of its most recent phone to other devices. This week, for instance, Pixel 4's live audio captioning tool expanded to Pixel 3 and 3a devices. Now, owners of older Pixel handsets can check out one of Pixel 4's niftier aspects: the Recorder app that can capture and transcribe audio simultaneously. Google said last month it'd make Recorder available for older Pixels. On Thursday, it updated the app, which should now pop up in the Play Store for other supported Pixels, namely Pixel 2 and later devices. However, it doesn't seem to work on the original Pixel -- at least not officially.

Engadget's Chris Velazco gave the Pixel 3a and 3a XL scores of 88 and 87 when he reviewed them. For the price, he found Google's mid-range phones offered reliable performance and battery life, as well as an excellent camera. As expected for two devices that cost less than $500, they don't include an official water resistance rating, but that's an easier omission to come to terms with when they're $50 to $100 cheaper.

Amazon, B&H, Best Buy

Google's Pixel 4 and Pixel 4 XL are $200 off at Amazon .
Another month means another Pixel 4 sale. This time around, you can get $200 off Google's latest flagship. Amazon has cut the price of the 64GB Clearly White and Just Black models to $599, down from $799. While this isn't the lowest price we've seen on the Pixel 4, it's close. And, in any case, $200 off is nothing to scoff at. Amazon has also discounted the bigger Pixel 4 XL. It's likewise $200 off, making it $699, instead of $899. Just note currently only the Clearly White model is $200 off -- the Just Black variant is a more modest $91 off. If you're set on buying the phone in black, Google has discounted both color variants by $200 on its website.
